NEWPORT, RI – Tactical teams were called to Cliff Walk to rescue a man that fell off the edge after his vehicle crashed into a nearby home early Saturday morning.

According to WPRI, a vehicle slammed into a home on Rose Street some time after midnight. The driver sped off before first responders were called to the scene.

Shortly after the first incident happened, firefighters called to rescue a man that had fallen 40 feet at Cliff Walk. The man was rescued by a tactical team and taken to a local hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
